You may have seen this photo on the Internet along with the claim that
"Castle House Island" is a real place
in Dublin, Ireland. It's actually
"James Bond Island" in Khao Phing Kan, Thailand.  The castle was placed on
the photo using Photoshop. The castle shown is only a portion of
Lichtenstein Castle (Germany).

It just goes to show how creative
people can be. Photoshop is a great product! So much enjoyment can be
had!  Let your creativeness bloom
with Photoshop!

'Khao Phing Kan' or 'Ko Khao
Phing Kan' is a pair of islands
on the west coast of Thailand,
in the Phang Nga Bay, Andaman
Sea. About 40ft from its shores
lies a 20 metres (66 ft) tall
islet 'Ko Tapu'. The island is
a part of the Ao Phang Nga
National Park.

Since 1974, when it was featured
in the James Bond movie 'The Man
with the Golden Gun', it is
popularly called James Bond
Island.

Lichtenstein Castle is situated
on a cliff located near Honau in
the Swabian Alb, Baden-
Württemberg, Germany. Histor-
ically there has been a castle
on the site since around 1200.
It was twice destroyed, once in
the Reichskriegs war of 1311
and again by the city-state of
Reutlingen in 1381. The castle
was not reconstructed and sub-
sequently fell to ruin. In 1802
the land came into the hands of
King Frederick I of Württemberg,
who built a hunting lodge there.
By 1837 the land had passed to
his nephew Duke Wilhelm of
Urach, Count of Württemberg,
who, inspired by Wilhelm Hauff's
novel "Lichtenstein" Lichtenstein
added the current castle in 1840.
The romantic Gothic Revival
architecture, Neo-Gothic design
of the castle was created by the
architect Carl Alexander
Heideloff.
